Football: GT upsets FSU... the 3rd Round of the Southern Region fictional football playoff system. Here's how they did it:

No. 9 Georgia Tech 20 ... No. 4 Florida State 13
Georgia Tech RB P.J. Daniels ran for a 19-yard touchdown with 1:32 to play to overcome a shaky performance from QB Reggie Ball and four turnovers. Florida State's offense struggled as well turning it over three times and failing to do much with the passing game, but Leon Washington was able to run for a nine-yard score and Lorenzo Booker tore off runs of 48 and 33 yards leading to two Xavier Beitia field goals including a 34 yarder to tie the score before Tech's final drive. While Ball had a tough day throwing three interceptions, he also threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Calvin Johnson and scrambled for a 22-yard third-and-11 run on the final drive. FSU's last gasp drive stalled at its own 41.
Player of the Game - Georgia Tech RB P.J. Daniels ran 25 times for 110 yards and a touchdown

Fun Stat - Penalties: Florida State 10 for 133 yards - Georgia Tech 1 for 5

4th Round - No. 9 Georgia Tech at No. 1 Auburn
